Composer Sandeep Khurana recites Shri Hanuman Chalisa in his new musical work, “Shri Hanuman Chalisa, Symphony of Sacred Chants”, an album entirely based on western harmony and orchestration.
His deep and resonant voice blends well with western strings and percussion creating a magnificent mix that sounds ambient, spacious and devotional. Hanuman Chalisa is a devotional song sang in praise of Lord Shri Rama, considered to be the seventh avatar of Vishnu in Hinduism, and a king of Ayodhya in ancient Indian Puranas. Lord Shri Rama is one of the many popular figures and deities in Hinduism. Written by Tulsidas in Awadhi language, Hanuman Chalisa is considered to be highly effective in warding off evil, remove hardships in life, and gaining wisdom and strength. The song is based on Lord Hanuman as the model devotee of Lord Shri Rama.
Hanuman Chalisa is a lot about strength, and the vocals nicely portray that quality. The album begins with Vakratunda Mahakaaya, the Mantra recited in praise of Lord Shri Ganesha, and considered etremely auspicious for initiating a task. Hanuman Chalisa follows next, with the beginning verse available as “Shri Hanuman Chalisa Intro”, followed by “Shri Hanuman Chalisa” full version. The album also has Sacred Mantras in praise of Lord Shiva, and Lord Shri Krishna. The CD Version of the album, has an additional track titled as “Shri Hanuman Chalisa, Harmony Voices” that has added harmony vocals sounding unique and bearing that energetic vibe very well conveying the message of strength, purity and devotion.
The album is available for downloads on iTunes, Google Music and other online stores.
